IQPC is organizing the 2nd International Congress Advanced Battery Technologies

(Nanowerk News) After the overwhelming demand 2008 experts from the Battery, Automotive and Chemical Industry will exchange their experiences in the fields of Li-ion batteries, ultracapacitors and automotive applications at the 2nd International Conference Advanced Battery Technologies taking place from 30th June to 2nd July in Frankfurt/Main, Germany.
The need for reliable batteries is increasing worldwide. The mar-ketability of electric vehicles is especially pushing the battery de-velopment. At the moment Lithium-ion batteries seem to meet best the demands for enhanced energy storage. But there are still many drawbacks that industry is currently trying to overcome: en-ergy density has to be increased, the life span needs to be ex-tended and the thermal stability to be optimised. The industry is putting a lot of effort in the research in the field of cell chemistry developments, new materials and nanotechnology.
The first congress day on Tuesday, 30th June 2009 is concentrating on latest developments in battery technologies, innovative materi-als and components for Li-ion batteries and will focus the question: “Is Lithium-ion the ideal battery?” Gianni Sartorelli (Maxwell Tech-nologies Inc., Switzerland) will give an insight into the topic „Com-bining batteries and ultracapacitors“.
On Wednesday, 1st July 2009 we will focus on intelligent batteries for the automotive industry and on strategies how to successfully meeting technical challenges. The attendees will hear about the “Aging behaviour of ultra high power Li-ion batteries” from the ex-pert of Energy Storage Components Dr. Olaf Böse (Continental AG).
Amongst other questions the interactive workshop day on Thurs-day, 2nd July will be facing the problems of Battery Management Systems for EV and HEV.
The conference addresses to experts from (Pre-) R&D Batteries & Energy Storage, Electronics, E/E-Systems, Energy Management, Electrical Powertrains, Hybrid Engine Development, Business De-velopment, Marketing and Sales.
